A Martian visiting the Wuxi China Expatdom on October 31st, would not know the the WCE was a Naturist Realm.
"The Halloween Holiday!" says Gambay’s Pub co-owner Frank Minkleman, "It is the one day of the year that everyone in the WCE wears clothes. Now, they don’t really dress in costumes per se. On Halloween day, Wuxi Expats basically all wear jeans, shirts and socks. The kind of things that people in less-enlightened jurisdictions wear everyday!"
Ivan Fence, a Wuxi Expat who comes from a family that has been Naturist for many generations, finds dressing on Halloween to be a challenge. "To begin with, I don’t know where these pieces of clothes are meant to be worn. Do you wear them on your head or on your feet? Do you put your legs in the holes in the clothes or do your feet in? And then I get told that I am wearing the clothes inside out and backwards! It all looks the same to me! But what baffles me more than anything is why you need to wear underwear! It is so restrictive!"
